When you go to a mattress dealer to buy a new mattress, they'll help you out in many ways. There are five things you should ask them when you make your purchase.
Do they deliver?
A mattress is not light, with the smallest twin mattress weighing at least 45 pounds on average. A larger mattress can be nearly double this size. On top of being heavy, a mattress can be bulky and hard to move. Ask your mattress dealer if they deliver because this will make buying a mattress much easier for you. A mattress store may charge for their delivery services or they may include mattress delivery and setup as part of the purchase price.
Do they custom order?
If you have very specific mattress needs and your mattress dealer doesn't have the style, brand, or type of mattress you want, will they do a custom order for you? A mattress store may be willing to reach out to a neighboring store or a branch in another location to get you a custom order, or they may be able to refer you to another store so you can get the mattress you need.
A custom mattress can be designed if you have medical needs or if you have allergies or other concerns. Ask your mattress dealer what a custom or special-ordered mattress will cost so you can budget accordingly.
Do they have display mattresses for sale?
Display or staged mattresses may be available for purchase at your local mattress dealer — all you have to do is ask. If you are on a budget, see if you can get last year's model or display mattress that may otherwise end up in a liquidation sale.
Do they sell toppers and other bedding?
A mattress store often sells more than just mattresses. They also sell bedding, toppers, and other sleeping accessories for a full night's rest. Ask your mattress dealer if they sell bedding and toppers of various designs and styles, and if they do, if you can work a price out for the combined purchase.
Do they have a payment plan?
A mattress dealer may be able to work out a no-money-down payment plan for you or another payment plan where you can have a certain amount of time to pay off a mattress. You could also buy a new mattress on store credit. This is a great way to help you get the mattress you desire if you don't have the money to pay for the entire unit upfront.
